Rep. Marlin Stutzman

The Tea Party Gets a Third Crack at Winning in Indiana

Indiana's Senate seats, for strange and unpredictable reasons, have been the white whales of Tea Party politics. In 2010, when Democratic Senator Evan Bayh retired, conservative state Senator Marlin Stutzman jumped into the race to replace him. So did John Hostettler, a former congressman. So did Coats, a fixture in Republican politics who had moved to North Carolina but moved back for another chance at power in Washington. The result was a Coats primary victory with 39.5 percent of the vote.

Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) is mulling a bid for the U.S. Senate in 2016, now that Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN) has announced he won’t run for re-election. Coats was originally recruited by the estabishment to stymie a 2010 Tea Party backed Senate bid by Stutzman. Stutzman is a conservative leader in the U.S. House, and at the beginning of this year voted against John Boehner for Speaker.
